One or two crackpots do not outweigh all the other great reviews.

Hmm seller from China, I would be afraid it is fake like some people say in comments
I guess it's easy to send it back as you're dealing with Amazon. The sellers name is LANGRIA UK, if they wasn't connected Amazon would delete the account already.
Send it back - yes that is what I am thinking but I have no comparison to real memory foam pillow.
Regarding to the seller's name - I think you can change it similar way as on ebay but I am not 100% sure as I am only buyer
If Langria is registered mark they can easily ask Amazon to shoot the shop down. BTW: there is only two reviews from almost 100 saying it's fake. If they was selling fake products I'm 100% sure Amazon would stop them as it's unethical and illegal. For this reason I'm much more comfortable to buy from Amazon than eBay.

if I'm being completely honest here then I would be happy for a sub £100 of this kinda spec and brand to do me 6 months and if it lasts longer then it's a plus for me. I class a phone at this price bracket as disposable.
I'm sure if it were your kids working in the mines to produce these phones, you might value them a little more.
lol!
I purchased this phone from Amazon UK for around £128 and was a seriously good bit of kit.

It is a metal unibody, nice screen which is very responsive, fast processor (for the price) and is getting an update to Android 7.

However this is one big BUT, that is the size and weight of the phone. It was the heaviest phone I have ever used and think it weighs close to 200g and is very thick. While it makes the phone feel solid and sturdy, it is just too big and heavy to have in your pockets and I sent it back for this exact reason!

Would have seriously considered purchasing this if not for the built-in battery. Heat anyways.

I am all for these Chinese phones given the price despite some issues, imagine how much Samsung and the likes make on a handset = grand display of profiteering, but if there's demand and all that, then why not, its a business at the end of the day. Xiaomi is a great example of a quality handset that don't cost £800, sheer madness if you ask me. Also phone engineers tell me that Samsungs internally are pathetic and have a limited lifespan, especially of recent models.

If anyone has this phone, can they comment on battery life?
Battery is the only thing to let it down. Screen is superb, speakers good, very responsive. Is a bit heavy but I didn't mind that. For £60 quite a feat. Only used mine for 2 weeks before going back into it's box. You could see the battery percentage going down when doing anything remotely intensive. Could barely get through a day and I am quite a low-medium user.

I did come from a NGM Endurance [4-5 days before charging] so I did manage my expectations but I expected more than 3/4 to 1 day. Using the NGM again now, keep looking at Moto G4/5 but not sure....
You can get the ZTE blade a512 from Vodafone for £65 plus £10 topup... Unlock for £1 on eBay...... ZTE is 2gb ram Android 6 and 16gb
johnnyd57uk
buggy , spyware etc absolute nonsense. My Leagoo had none of this and the software was pretty straightforward. The whole thing about spyware is totally OTT. What Chinse hacker is going to be interested in the whereabouts or goings on of a Sam Smith in Grimsby or anywhere else for that matter. Wheres the evidence of mass scale intrusion. Cheap news stories for the gullible.

Spyware maybe but adware is lucrative. They want a piece of the pie HotUkDeals have, they want their affiliate income and one way to do that is to hide malware on the device.

For this price, you'd be better off paying another £7 for the Xiaomi Redmi phone from the other thread. At least with the Xiaomi you get a tried and tested brand / phone without the risk of GPS / software glitches etc. Alot of manufacturer / developer support with the Xiaomi software as well.

I'm thinking of getting one of these boxes. Do they stream live tv and sports or is it just for using online services such as Netflix etc?
What you're actually asking is.. "Does this box come with software that will allow me to watch Live Tv illegally?"
And no, it doesn't.
I didn't mention anything about watching anything illegally or wrongly. Live TV includes Sky go which requires a paid service and I am a novice to this as mentioned.
Stop making assumptions unless you like to be exposed as a fool like this.

I'm looking for an Android TV box to use with TinyCam to monitor and record my IP cameras instead of using the apps specific for the cameras. Would this be sufficient or is there anything cheaper that would be able to cope with 2+ cameras?
Not too sure about Rockchip but it is cheap!

Not everyone requires B20!
You must be mistaken because Sam says you do! And an SD835! Until a new SD flagship processor appears and then it will be 'you don't want an SD835. Rinse and repeat. :p
What you are actually saying is not everyone requires good 4G reception. B20 band is used by all 4G networks. When in crowded places like London , where your phone is competing with other phones for the signal , you need the best phone reception possible.

Considering you will outright lie about the implications of B20 by saying phones without B20 are WiFi tablets not made to work in the UK, I don't see how you expect anyone to agree with your opinions when you are so unbelievably biased about it and for many months have been stating it like a broken record. The first time I ever replied to you in this comment is as valid now as it was back then. Despite many people pointing out they are perfectly fine without B20 and use 4G with full signal, you continue to be willingly ignorant towards the simple fact that not everyone has the same needs and preferences as you do. It's not something for you to dictate and others to follow. They will decide for themselves. Not only in regards to the electronics they buy but also what they consume. You seem to be unable to accept that fact too. I continue to hope for the day you come to realise your opinions aren't applicable towards everyone else.

Except for children, why is anyone buying phones with only a 5" screen when 5.5" are available?
half an inch is 10%,not a lot is it.
Looking at screen area, it's probably closer to 20% bigger.

So, ahhhh, what's 10 inches then?. ;-)

Sorry, wrong thread. :-(

I want to buy a gaming laptop or PC to play a game called black desert online. Anyone recommend this laptop? :|


I bought the laptop when it was £740 and it is a good laptop.

Plays most games on medium settings, it is a good laptop for the price.. However IMO the screen is matte and pretty dark at times, so might be better to look elsewhere.

Is a good price for the laptop at present.

But it will probably go cold as was £740 a few weeks ago with a free Xbox elite controller.

But with a V10 you need a portable generator, I'd love one but the battery is hopeless on a scale all of its own. Everything else is top notch (ignoring the motherboard bootloop issue) but just wtf were the thinking?

Mi Max is epic, only let down by the camera in anything but perfect conditions - love mine, here's hoping the Mi Max 2 gets the camera from the Mi 6.

But you can get an lg v10 for around the same price on ebay new with seller warranty and PayPal protection
It will be updated to nougat has a great camera and headphone audio quality.

But a smaller screen and poor battery life, the USPs of this device.

mines about 2 inches in from the right, an inch or so above the taskbar - seems to be stuck on white. ran a pixel unsticker program and no luck so must be manufacturing defect
Mmm me to mines central just below the webcam. I was just wondering if others had theirs in the same place as may of been a known fault on a batch also. Still seems to be common. It's a shame but this was only bought as a very cheap make do that can be downgraded to a media box equivalent later on. Much better than wasting £3-400 on a budget laptop when you really want something higher spec, while saving ect.8)
Thanks for commenting.

yeah they're built to a budget so you sort of expect little niggled - if i return it i guess they dont have any other stock, and it seems theres no guarentees anyway. for £60 its a fine media PC and ive even got it as a server now with an internal drive finally working
I have to agree because it was £60 and not 2 or 3 tines as much. I know a working replacement battery would make it a £100 ish machine. I think I can live with it as well no replacement seems possible. If I'd paid £150 or so I think it be going back though. However I never would of bought it at that price. It simply was cheap enough with no battery to have a good temp use for now and then to be downgraded in the future to a great media PC or other use.
I'm not in tune with server use and how it works but I can't see how one can fit a internal drive in it so am guessing that is something else I'm not sure on. :3


the bottom clamshell comes off with 4 screws and a hard drive bracket comes in the box. pop a hard drive in, screw it back in and jobs a good 'un :)

Out of interest what is the location of your dead pixel ? Thanks
Got one also... about half way up ~ 3 inches in from the right

mines about 2 inches in from the right, an inch or so above the taskbar - seems to be stuck on white. ran a pixel unsticker program and no luck so must be manufacturing defect
Mmm me to mines central just below the webcam. I was just wondering if others had theirs in the same place as may of been a known fault on a batch also. Still seems to be common. It's a shame but this was only bought as a very cheap make do that can be downgraded to a media box equivalent later on. Much better than wasting £3-400 on a budget laptop when you really want something higher spec, while saving ect.8)
Thanks for commenting.

yeah they're built to a budget so you sort of expect little niggled - if i return it i guess they dont have any other stock, and it seems theres no guarentees anyway. for £60 its a fine media PC and ive even got it as a server now with an internal drive finally working
I have to agree because it was £60 and not 2 or 3 tines as much. I know a working replacement battery would make it a £100 ish machine. I think I can live with it as well no replacement seems possible. If I'd paid £150 or so I think it be going back though. However I never would of bought it at that price. It simply was cheap enough with no battery to have a good temp use for now and then to be downgraded in the future to a great media PC or other use.
I'm not in tune with server use and how it works but I can't see how one can fit a internal drive in it so am guessing that is something else I'm not sure on. :3

i want this whats your feedback guys in terms of basic tasks
I've been running Office on mine and using it for browsing and it's been fine. I have it in clamshell mode hooked up to the Phillips 23.6 IPS monitor from eBuyer that was on here a few days ago. For £150, it's a decent setup. Granted I already had an external keyboard and mouse.
I've been looking for office but doesn't seem cheap enough anywhere. My compromise here is buying a monitor but I've been struggling to find out if this dirt cheap £60 machine can take a 2k or 4k display at full resolution. :{

On topic though, iirc MIUI is similar to iOS in theme. I'd want to get closer to stock Android, is that possible?
You can install your own launcher, you just install an app from the Play store, set it at the default launcher and away you go - you don't need root access to do that. I use Nova launcher on my Samsung as I like the customisation, the default launcher is 4x4 icons which is far too big for the screen but with Nova launcher I can set it to 6x6, customise the app drawer, desktop transitions when going between home screens, I can backup/restore home screen configurations and also install the same launcher and setup on different models of phones.
Hmm, but that won't cover things like the settings menu or the notification bar? It also won't cover any deeper modifications which was the reason I stopped using Samsung phones (Galaxy S 1, Note 1), they'd made changes that broke... something. DPI scaling maybe? I can't remember, too long ago, got the impression that samsung can't code to save their lives though.

True although it does mostly change the look and feel of the phone. All the main Samsung software gets broken by DPI scaling (launcher, camera app, dialer etc) so needs replaced but core stuff all works fine.

Negative. No B20 4g band in expensive phone.
The phone has band 20 dude it was Xiaomi bench tester for official expansion into the US and Europe.
Need to be careful on this one, if Band 20 is important (i.e. for O2 or Vodafone users), then need to go for the 'Global Version.' This is minimum 6 GB/128 GB and price starts at £432.29.http://www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_617023.html?wid=4
This device was made with band 20 from day one.

Obviously going to be more expensive than this but people may want to wait for forthcoming Xiaomi Mi6 as it's on another level compared to this:http://pocketnow.com/2017/04/19/xiaomi-mi-6-official-specs-features-pricing-china
I'm tempted to upgrade my Xiaomi mi5 to this however the lack of headphone jack, and price has put me off a bit .
Also cant really compare Vs this deal its going to be about 2x as much when its available through the re sellers
It will be interesting to see what the actual "street price" turns out to be because the RRP of $360 converts to about £250.http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/new-product/mobile-phone/xiaomi-mi6-news-release-date-price-features-specifications-3653263/
The interesting thing that they have the SD835 from the Galaxy S8 and a similar dual standard / wide angle camera from the LG G6, so in a flash, they've already got two key features from the leading flagship phones. This could be a really interesting phone if they can get the pricing right.http://u01.appmifile.com/235_huodong_in/19/04/2017/6a196a66-ee71-4465-8718-09ea641d6ce2.jpeg
Geekbuying presale price is $490.

Jeez....that's more than Xiaomi's RRP. I'm sure the price will come down once released. Geekbuying seem to be cashing in on pre-release hype!

Is Band 20 a deal breaker? With EE, Vodafone and 3 using bands that are supported by many of these Chinese phones it shouldn't be a problem
Don't agree . I live in west London, where Vodafone shut down 2g frequency, 3g is horrible and only one working is 800 MHz 4g band 20. This is why i changed my xiaomi note 4g to le max x822. My girlfriend got xiaomi Red mi 3 with EE and no 4g reception at all. It shows mobile phone operators can easilly push ppl in any area of UK to use frequency they never needed in the past.

Wasn't preaching mate more asking a question. I mentioned the networks that provide the service (1, 3 and 7) however I wouldn't touch Vodafone with an oversized barge poll!

Ordered one four days ago, anyone else still waiting for dispatch? This new phone is the same price as a repair on my Note 4 (motherboard failure just outside the warranty!) worth the risk for me considering my note 4, wanted to keep that for a while, sad it's bust.
Don't worry, it's a commonly KNOWN 'trait' with that of things coming via BangGood!, their stuff's are coming fresh via China! (this is now commonly known/accepted trait amongst the HUKD Community).
An average of 2 weeks? (or anything up to 3 weeks or so?, has been known to happen via BangGood Delivered stuff?, so ..... )
But saying that though, some have received their items in as 1.5 weeks/10 days?, hehehe.
Don't worry, it WILL come. :-)
Thanks Armour and for the deal, quite excited about this phone, seems really good and good feedback in general from people and reviews, thanks for sharing all those links and tips, really useful. Been told it's been posted now so now the waiting game!

Your most welcome. :-)

I've ordered different stuff's from them on and off over the years too.

And my own personal experience has had an average of 2 weeks for my various stuffs (10 days earliest, and 3 weeks maximum?), so ..... hehehe.

All the best with your purchase same way?. :-)
No longer available, " Coupon can only be used 500 times"!
i wont be buying a mainstream make again. I've got a Nexus 6p and. Xiaomi Redmi Pro that i bought two mouths ago at half the price of the 6p. The xiaomi is fast, has loads of storage and is very well made. I'll be buying Chinese again. heat added.

cannot update yet to miui 8.2
That's not official. It's a vendor ROM. Official stable ROMs have a 4-digit x.x.x.x format build number and will get OTA updates. Global ROMs have 'MI' in the letter code. Your ROM is 5-digit and according to this thread is letter code MBDCNDE. The 'CN' means it is a custom Global, created from the China ROM and not the official Global. Latest Official ROM here.
I didn't know that. Thanks for the heads up and link. Now have to root and load.
I'd be tempted to download and install the global rom from the Xiaomi support website, banggood have been known to muck about with the roms. My 32 GB MI Max is on 8.2.4 and updates via ota fine, mine came from a seller on aliexpress with good feedback and a guarantee that it was the factory installed global rom and the phone would be delivered as sealed in the factory.
Personally I wouldn't buy from banggood because they have this reputation.

Beware ! the spares for these intl editions are in limited editions.
Can someone in the know advise if this would be the best smartphone deal under £90 ? Or are there others I should be looking at? Mine is on it's last legs, but don't want to buy this if there are better options out there? Not looking for a phone much bigger than 5"

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

International edition with B20 for O2 users
The "International Version" doesn't have B20. Check the spec differences when you switch between "International Version" and "Global Version". The "International Version" doesn't list B20. It's a name Gearbest have applied themselves to refer to China model with Global ROM. It's also stated in the Q&A. The B20 one is "Global Version" and costs around £90.
Pardon my stupidity but ... what is B20 ? And would either the "global" or "international" version work on 3's 4G network ? And would they be a substantial improvement on my, current, Moto G running Android 5.1 ?

If you have an original Moto G, then this phone benchmarks as twice as fast, according to Antutu.
To me International & Global are the same thing so I could've bought this In error!

B20 - Band 20 (800mhz) is a 4G frequency used by a number of mobile operators but not all Chinese phones include it. More info here. It's not required for Three 4G. They do use B20 but it's only for their 4G Supervoice which only a handful of phones can utilise. Three mainly use B3 for 4G which is covered by both versions so either would be okay for Three. If you mean a 1st gen Moto G, it would be an improvement but I'm not sure how much of a substantial one it would be. Bare in mind the Redmi 4A is the cheapest/lowest spec current Xiaomi phone. The other 5" Redmi phones are better specced and would be a bigger improvement.

I'm totally lost now when it comes to memory cards and specs. I managed to pick up some Sandisk 32gb Extreme MicroSDHC UHS-I class 10 U3 4K thinking they were supposed to be fast. Put one in my phone to use as extended internal storage and the phone said "This SD card appears to be slow" !!! They were bought from a shop too (not eBay etc.) so should be genuine. Who knows. According to the blurb on the packet - Extreme speed. Hmmm...
well they are fast enough to be used in gopros so it depends really
did you format in phone?
cards also have different random speeds which phones like (though that cards is supposed to be pretty good tbh)
the slow one in the range is 'ultra' which sounds pretty fast, dont think they'll be branding them 'sandisk junk' 'sandisk meh' 'sandisk average' 'sandisk overpriced' anytime soon though!
Yes, brilly, I did format it in the phone as you have to for it to become "internal" storage. This is the new feature they introduced with Android Marshmallow apparently. Don't get me wrong - it all seemed to work as it should have. The card is being recognised etc. So I'm not worried. It just puzzled me why the phone said it was slow. If what goNz017 says is correct then it's too ruddy fast! Typical. I would've thought; like USB; the phone would scale back to whatever it's fastest speed would be. Perhaps that's what it has done?
It does say on the packaging that it's designed for Android/phones/cameras etc. I have seen them in Tesco now - exactly the same packaging except it has a "V30" symbol (whatever that is) instead of the class 10 logo. Another new speed maybe???
v30 is some other crappy rating thing, minimum 30MB/s for video which the extreme already did so its just a relabel really
after the card said it appears to be slow... was it actually slow?
(there is also going to be an appspeed rating at some point)
Ahh, I see. Thanks for that explanation. To be honest brilly, I'm only now beginning to get my head around my very first smartphone so I have no basis for comparison. I've not done much on the phone yet but nothing appears to be misbehaving! I'm struggling because even with a manual, everything assumes you already know what you're doing with regards to Android.
Even putting in contacts is throwing me. I can't work out why some of the contacts have little padlock symbols. I'm thinking it's like my old dumb phone and they are contacts you can't delete - like network CS support and voicemail etc. It's just there's two of everything. One without a padlock (which you can delete) and one with a lock, that you can't.
if there is 2 of everything sounds like maybe showing sim contacts and phone stored contacts but just guessing!
yeah 'instruction manual' ... thanks for buying the phone - heres our website BYEEEE
Yeah, exactly. Hehe! Google isn't much help either as there's just too many "answers" and it's never your 'exact' model or problem. Just boils down to experimenting for myself and hoping I don't goof up. That's why I love this site and it's helpful members.

I'm totally lost now when it comes to memory cards and specs. I managed to pick up some Sandisk 32gb Extreme MicroSDHC UHS-I class 10 U3 4K thinking they were supposed to be fast. Put one in my phone to use as extended internal storage and the phone said "This SD card appears to be slow" !!! They were bought from a shop too (not eBay etc.) so should be genuine. Who knows. According to the blurb on the packet - Extreme speed. Hmmm...
well they are fast enough to be used in gopros so it depends really
did you format in phone?
cards also have different random speeds which phones like (though that cards is supposed to be pretty good tbh)
the slow one in the range is 'ultra' which sounds pretty fast, dont think they'll be branding them 'sandisk junk' 'sandisk meh' 'sandisk average' 'sandisk overpriced' anytime soon though!
Yes, brilly, I did format it in the phone as you have to for it to become "internal" storage. This is the new feature they introduced with Android Marshmallow apparently. Don't get me wrong - it all seemed to work as it should have. The card is being recognised etc. So I'm not worried. It just puzzled me why the phone said it was slow. If what goNz017 says is correct then it's too ruddy fast! Typical. I would've thought; like USB; the phone would scale back to whatever it's fastest speed would be. Perhaps that's what it has done?
It does say on the packaging that it's designed for Android/phones/cameras etc. I have seen them in Tesco now - exactly the same packaging except it has a "V30" symbol (whatever that is) instead of the class 10 logo. Another new speed maybe???
v30 is some other crappy rating thing, minimum 30MB/s for video which the extreme already did so its just a relabel really
after the card said it appears to be slow... was it actually slow?
(there is also going to be an appspeed rating at some point)
Ahh, I see. Thanks for that explanation. To be honest brilly, I'm only now beginning to get my head around my very first smartphone so I have no basis for comparison. I've not done much on the phone yet but nothing appears to be misbehaving! I'm struggling because even with a manual, everything assumes you already know what you're doing with regards to Android.
Even putting in contacts is throwing me. I can't work out why some of the contacts have little padlock symbols. I'm thinking it's like my old dumb phone and they are contacts you can't delete - like network CS support and voicemail etc. It's just there's two of everything. One without a padlock (which you can delete) and one with a lock, that you can't.
if there is 2 of everything sounds like maybe showing sim contacts and phone stored contacts.
i only have phone contacts so 1 set, you should be able to choose which set to display from the 3 dots menu when you open up contacts.


yeah 'instruction manual' ... thanks for buying the phone - heres our website BYEEEE

Don't know why people are voting cold it's a good deal for top notch laptop memory. For example check other product with exact same specification but different brand (I mean price wise).

Most of the tablets produced are if you are lucky using the old Z8300, most are even slower. Its no race horse but should be ok for day to day browsing.

You have to pay £280 to get this spec in UK stores.

Yes i agree with The Guru. Only scores 3056 on benchmark. Our 6 year old i3 scores about the same. A lot better spec out there for less money. I just bought an Asus TP300 flip with an i7 processor just under 2 years old for £200.00 so second hand values drop considerably as i know the one i bought was well over £600 when new.

I'm an idiot. I've just realised I have the 710 variant, not the 510. The 710 is much slimmer in depth with smaller bezels. The keyboard is probably different too.

Idiot.


You're right, the only one they had in store when I looked is the 710 and the slimmer depth is much nicer but I've just had my 510 delivered so I'll see how it compares

Posting from one of these laptops right now. I've had around 3 months of usage and the touchscreen and foldability aspect of it has made my existing tablet completely obsolete. Tent mode is particularly useful for use on trains or on a table The IPS screen is top quality, with deep blacks and rich colours. The side screen bezels are so small that the 14" screen fits into what would traditionally be a 13" frame. The i7, 8GB of RAM and SSD make it incredibly fast. The laptop isn't particularly heavy either. Battery life is excellent too.
I'd definitely recommend this to anybody who wants a fast and versatile laptop. If anybody has any questions about it I'll be happy to answer.
How many hours of battery life do you get? Also what's the keyboard like? Any good to type on?

The keyboard is one of the better laptop keyboards. My only niggle is the placement of the right shift button that's too close to the arrow keys.

I haven't done any battery life tests, but from memory I can recall times where I've got almost a whole working day out of it without recharging.


Does the keyboard feel a little narrow to type on? I had a brief go at typing on it and it seemed a bit squashed into the centre. I'm used to a 14" Sony Vaio keyboard but I'm looking to refresh and they don't make them anymore! But I'm gonna be typing a lot so I was wondering how have you found it with typing for long periods of time?

Here's a video review of basically the same model but with slightly less components - review is from last Nov - but it is interesting that the reviewer does not rate the graphics card in it ... and the one in Currys has an even older version of the graphics card.

Dear Priceyrice. the glare is not too bad it does have a reflection, but, the quality of the screen is superb and stunning apart from that. Like most laptops/tablets not suitable outside in direct sunlight.
Anyone got one of these, I heard the screen glare is awful, anyone able to confirm?
If you don't need a touchscreen/tablet get the Median S3409 and save £160.
Spec on site says it's QHD resolution. Very high for a laptop of this size.
Is it aluminium?

You're not going to get FHD at this price...http://i.imgur.com/6ET18Ot.jpg
I don't see why not, it will be cra* otherwise, it usually goes with a nasty dull display
So you're saying all 1366x768 screen are crap and all FHD screens are wonderful?
Not necessarily, but it's well know that the same screen is fitted to a variety of machines and there seems to be a particularly nasty screen of this resolution going round with low contrast. Low viewing angle. But it is surprising what a difference this makes. Besides movies in HD, you just can't fit so much on the screen.
Like HD ready tvs, why do manufacturers still do it?
Because at less than 40 inch the non-AV snobs don't care? I think that HD ready is fine. Yes full hd, backlit keyboards, etc. are nice, but on budget machines they are rare for a reason. Give me HD ready plus decent CPU & ram over FHD & a processor less powerful than one likely to be found in a high end calculator in a few years.
IMO, it's consumer ignorance. This machine ticks all the other obvious boxes, but not this one, sometimes they don't even mention it. Caveat Emptor (^ ^)

This is a great price for a great little tablet, although I'd be tempted just to spend the extra for the 10v64 with the extra 2GB RAM and extra 32GB storage.
Either way, heat.

forgive my ignorance but isn't there a stock firmware installed?

Yes and no.

It has Chinese firmware on it.

And that Chinese firmware is Nougat (Android 7.0). :-)

Other firmware's exist however?, a more 'Global' version (Indian is one of them, but that's on Android 6.0 though?).

So it's purely up to you?. :-)

How does android pay work without nfc?

Read the comments that were also Posted here:

https://zukfans.eu/community/threads/does-pro-has-nfc-or-not.2095/

But in particular this one here, where it says:

Thanks for info.
I read a post, where a zuk owner asked zuk. (zucmobile.cc)

"ZUK Z2 Pro doesn't support NFC for now. We will release on our website when we got more news."

This could only meen, device have nfc hardware, but its not implement inside the kernel and zui. :-(

I hope this gives you some kind of small insight?. :-)

A lot of phones no longer have micro SD. This does however have 128GB on board I think easily 100GB storage after OS usage. For me it is a really good phone as I used to only use a 32GB micro SD on my old phone storage isn't an issue.

The official Chinese ROM is actually running nougat.

A little bit of faff with ROMs and stuff. I personally unlocked the bootloader so technically no warranty anymore. Booted twrp and used adb commands to remove the Chinese bloatware. Using google now launcher and its a great phone.

Phone has B20 4G which most Chinese ones don't.

Import tax also to consider.

This phone is definitely not for everyone, but great phone for money if you're technical enough.
what about warranty if it develops a fault?

Ordered 4 for my iPod classic X) It's a shame that the 256gb samsung sdxc's aren't cheaper, since the write speed on these are terrible. Either way for my iPod classic only the read speed really matters, it will just take a few days to fill it.
iFlash :) - Great products
Sadly my iFlash quad won't work with these 200gb cards in my iPod classic running Rockbox. Bought two, but crashes trying to copy data from PC. Seems to work OK with Sandisk 128gb but not the 200gb so beware.

I hear you but isn't there a database limit of ~60K songs depending on tags unless you are using an alternate O/S which I am not? That's why I've stayed at 512GB via two fast full size SDXC cards which were £60 the pair via CeX; fully tested.
Yeah it's about 64K before it starts to run out of RAM. But I'm using 16 bit FLAC with Rockbox. So I'm only going to get about 40,000 songs on anyway (assuming I can get everything in FLAC)
I did wonder about FLAC and other firmware and whether Rockbox has the same limit.

I'd be interested in this due to the specs, but ASUS have big problems with bloatware, so the specs would be inevitably eaten up by ASUS crap... Gave heat because for the money it seems a good deal and for those who do the "rooting" thing it's probably even better, but I cannot do that stuff and because of the horrid crud I've had from ASUS I'll pass on this, heat anyways

I hear your predicament there, hmmmmmmmmmm, but fair enough still?.

Thanx for the heat + the feedback anyway.

All the best in your Mobile Phone endeavours though?. :-)

corsair dominator platinumRAM - Adding Memory to PCs or Laptops

RAM stands for Random Access Memory. In contrast to magnetic storage devices such as your hard drive, RAM is memory that can be accessed randomly by your computer - that is to say, without following sequentially from other bytes. It is sometimes referred to as main memory and is the primary memory that determines the speed and performance of your computer.

Upgrading Your RAM: The Beginnings

Memory storage itself started from what we would consider nowadays to be pretty humble beginnings. Starting with a Vacuum Cube similar to those used in CRT monitors, memory storage didn't begin to evolve into its modern shape until the development of the transistor by Bell Labs. This allowed Latches - a configuration of transistors that could store a single bit of data - to evolve into Flip-Flops, which in turn evolved into Registers, the common component in most modern static memory cells. Since then, we've seen the first widely-adopted architecture for RAM, the Single Data Rate RAM or SDR RAM, become virtually obsolete in favour of the newer Double Rate Data architecture (DDR).

Types of RAM - SRAM, DRAM and SDRAM

There are two main types of RAM, each with their own pros and cons. To summarise them briefly, DRAM (Dynamic RAM) is slower than SRAM because its electrical charge needs to be refreshed at intervals. However, as it uses fewer transistors, it takes up less space while providing the same amount or even more storage than the SRAM, and it is also significantly cheaper. For these reasons, it is more frequently used in modern computers than the faster Static RAM. However, SRAM uses less power and requires less heat dissipation. Within a modern computer device, DRAM is often used as part of the main memory while SRAM is often used for Cache memory. What is important to remember is that DRAM will be the main type of memory to worry about when it comes to upgrading your computer's memory.g.skill trident z

One more thing to bear in mind in the acronym-filled world of Random Access Memory. The DRAM you find in your common computer is also often referred to as SDRAM (Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory), not to be confused with the afore mentioned SRAM.

RAM Formatting Systems: DDR, DDR2, DDR3 and DDR4

Currently, there are four main types of SDRAM systems available. The one currently most prevalent in the marketplace is the DDR3, but a newer generation has come into the game, namely the DDR4. These four are important to know when you are upgrading your RAM, as if you are trying to insert a DIMM (dual in-line memory module) into your motor board, it will not work if it is working with one format and your own device is formatted using another.

  • DDR: Developed in 2000, DDR doubled the memory transfer speed of the time by enabling memory transfer on both the rise and fall of the clock signal that underlies all information transfer in computing. It also reduced the amount of power being used.
  • DDR2: DDR2 doubled transfer speed again (up to 1,066MTps) while reducing power demands even further.
  • DDR3: Roughly twice speed of DDR2 at 2,133MTps, DDR3 is now the common standard for newly created devices. However, this is a relatively recent development so many of your older device may very well still be using the DDR2 or even DDR format.
  • DDR4: The newest development in this range is the DDR4 which can handle data rates up to 3200MTps.

RAID - Data Storage and Performance Improvement

On their own, each of these devices will store information effectively but won't increase the performance of your computer dramatically. However, one interesting avenue for upping computer performance is through the utilisation of RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks). This is a system that allows multiple drives to work together to effectively provide you with a single drive that holds the capacity of all your drives combined. It can also be effective in increasing reliability, as it can be configured to allow your computer to continue functioning even after a hard drive crash. This means increased data safety. There are several levels of RAID, but as a whole it is certainly creating new horizons for performance and data safety, making it well worth a look. We won't have time to go into more detail on RAID today, but we will keep you posted as it develops.

Buying RAM: A Few Tips

When it comes to upgrading your RAM, the first thing to confirm is that the chip you are using is compatible with the DDR system of your computer's memory. While DDR chips are harder to find these days, DDR2 chips are still widely available, though you will pay more and get less back in terms of increased performance than with the more prevalent and high-performance DDR3 and DDR4 chips. If your device is in a DDR format, it may be time to consider a full-system upgrade or even a new computer.

corsair vengeance lpxThe Best RAM for Your Needs - Some Other Tricks

If possible, try to find a chip with the same speed as that of your motherboard. The speed is given in the specs and is the number with MTps at the end. Differences in speed can result in under-performance or even lags. If your chip speed is slower than your computer, your computer will be unable to operate at its full potential. If it is faster, your motherboard may have trouble keeping up with it.

Step one before going out to buy some more RAM is to consult your user guide and find out more about your computer’s memory slots and how the RAM is distributed. For example, your motherboard may have two slots with one 512MB chip in each or it may have a single 1GB chip in one of three slots. Determining this will allow you to know beforehand how big a chip - and even how many chips - you will need to buy in order to see a significant increase in your computer’s performance.

Who Does RAM Best and Should You Pay for the Premium Brands?

RAM is still an important part of your computer device's performance. However, recently more and more processes are being incorporated into the CPU itself. These processes now often include a memory controller, which allows for much more memory bandwidth. This extra bandwidth has downgraded the importance of RAM for overall performance. The upshot of this is that RAM costs have dropped dramatically. While the change in technology trends has downgraded the impact of RAM on performance, the significant drops in cost have also made it one of the most cost effective ways to bump up your system's performance. Recommendable RAM manufacturers that you should compare include: Corsair, Kingston, G.Skill, Team Group and Patriot.

So why pay more? The question still remains of whether or not there is any reason to pay much for a top-quality RAM extension. One of the arguments for forking out a little extra has to do with something called memory latency. This one is a little complicated but, in short, latencies measure the number of operating cycles it takes to execute a task within the memory. The better the memory kit you have, the better this will function and the more improvement you'll see to your devices performance. Each memory kit you purchase will give you a rating for the latencies. All you really need to know is the lower the latency numbers, the better.

Finding the Best Low Price RAM

You can purchase additional RAM from street stores such as Currys, Maplin, CeX or Euronics easily, though perhaps not at the most competitive prices. Online vendors such as Crucial, Ebuyer, Pixmania and even Amazon offer good prices and an excellent level of variety, however, if you are unsure of what you need, it might be better to call into a store first and speak to someone with a bit of know-how.

Generally, electronics tend to be cheaper at certain times of the year. Especially when it comes to shopping events such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday. After the rush of Christmas it´s also wise to take a look at RAM deals during the January Sales.
